It's now been about two months since I watched anything on TV, becase everytime I turn it on all I get is some reality TV bull**** that I really don't care about.

Every year, we get another stupid Survivor, Big Brother, or XXX Idol which is always more mediocre and boring than last years useless attempt at entertainment.

And all of the semi-good reality TV show ideas have been taken already, so now there's all of this bull**** crap like The Biggest Loser or My Kid is a Childhood Star. When will it end?

The novelty has worn off. Cut the reality TV bull**** and give me something entertaining to watch for once.

Great username!

I do watch Scrubs, but its not airing here at the moment. I have to buy the DVDs, which I just can't afford at the moment and its the same for pretty much any other TV show I like.

I don't understand what the problem is. If you don't like it, don't watch it. There's plenty of good prime time network shows out there. And a whole slew of quality scripted television on cable channels.


edit: I just realized you're from Australia. I don't know anything about what american programming you do or don't get, so I can't make any recommendations of what you should be watching.

Everyone keeps suggesting other shows, and I'll agree that they're all awesome. But they're just not on often enough. What's the chances of turning on the TV at any time of the day and finding that something decent is randomly on? There's too much crap surrounding all of the good stuff.

Because it sells. If you want to take it up with every middle-aged house wife who didn't fulfil her dreams or those little pre-teenies who think they are the kings and queens of everything, go for it. But as long as it sells it's there.

I work full time but cars/food/house/bills make a huge dent in my money. I spend what little I have left over on good DVDs when I can though. I bought Firefly last week.

the office and it's always sunny in philadelphia are the only shows i really watch on tv nowadays.

does anyone else find scrubs ridiculously cheesy?? For some reason I just can't get into it. I've watched several episodes, and I'm not saying it's a bad show, but to me it's just too predictable and corny.

Nice, i hear it's an alright show. Shame about the lack on episodes though. But yeah well I'm not at the stage where i have to be paying bills just yet but alas most my pay goes to greater causes alike. DVDs, guitar and writing are my only real escapes so i always try to buy some.

Chasers War on Everything (when it is on)
Cricket

And a few others which I occasionally tune into.

I take it you just saw the new ad for BB this year? I was kind of hoping they'd give it up. The biggest problem is that with only 5 public channels, BB taking up the time on one of them, politics and other serious stuff taking up another, we are left with just 3 channels of programs when that piece of sh*t starts back up again.

I think i watched the first season of big brother and the first few seasons of survivor before i just stopped caring.

The only reality TV that I watch are shows on the Discovery Channel ala Deadliest Catch, Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, Survivor Man and Man Vs. Wild. I don't understand who people watch crap like American Idol or Survivor. Too much drama and playing up of the beautiful people. Sickens me.

Just find one of those websites that has loads of videos of tv shows. Not that I endorse it. In fact, I never said anything! You're a liar!
